UPDATE: Kanye West added five more tour dates on Wednesday, just one day after announcing the Saint Pablo tour, which will support his February album The Life of Pablo.
The new schedule includes second dates in Toronto, Miami, and Oakland, a third date in Los Angeles, and one date in Grand Rapids, Michigan. See a full updated list of tour dates below.
EARLIER: The chance to see Kanye West perform The Life of Pablo live has arrived. West announced the Saint Pablo tour Tuesday together with Live Nation and Tidal. The shows will kick off Aug. 25 in Indianapolis, Indiana before making 40 stops in North America.
He’ll play two nights at New York’s Madison Square Garden, two nights at Los Angeles’ The Forum, and two nights in his hometown Chicago.
Just after West released The Life of Pablo, an industry insider told EW that West had plans to tour with the album. “There are serious talks of a tour,” and industry source told EW. “Of course there’s demand. He definitely sells tickets.”
He then began teasing a tour in May when he told Steve Harvey that he would tour this fall. “We’re going to go out in September,” he said on Harvey’s radio show. “We’re just working on some ideas right now. My tour game is strong. My tour game is unprecedented. … I’m trying to literally inspire these kids the way Disney inspired me when I first saw the original Star Wars.”
West had been scheduled to give his first major post-Pablo performance on June 5 as part of New York’s Governors Ball. But his set was canceled due to “severe weather.” He then scheduled a surprise show at the city’s Webster Hall. But after thousands of people showed up and waited in the streets, the venue announced he would not perform.
Tickets go on sale Friday, June 18 via LiveNation.com. American Express cardholders will have access to a presale on Tuesday, June 14, and Tidal members will have access to a presale on Thursday, June 16.
